Colgin Cellars

No other domestic producer of fine wines has topped Robb Report’s Best of the Best list more frequently than Colgin Cellars, whose 2006 IX Estate Cabernet Sauvignon took top honors this year. From the first release of the winery’s Cabernet from Herb Lamb Vineyards, which became an instant classic, collectors have fervently sought Colgin wines at auction and through private sales. This success can be attributed in part to proprietor Ann Colgin’s conviction that winemaking should be approached as an art, not just as a business. “It was through the [art] auction world that I came to the wine world. I went to work for Christie’s in New York, and my mentor there was one of the guest auctioneers for the Napa Valley Wine Auction in the ’80s. That was how my love of Napa Valley was nurtured. So it’s been a long odyssey to finally have this fabulous winery up at IX Estate.”

 Join Robb Report Editor in Chief Brett Anderson on a visit to Colgin’s exclusive 124-acre mountaintop estate, where art and nature merge to yield liquid masterpieces.
